T-wolves owner Glen Taylor: Chauncey left because of Flip

New, comment

Minnesota owner Glen Taylor, in an incredibly frank interview in the Minneapolis/St. Paul City Pages, blames the departure of Chauncey Billups on Flip Saunders.

...Chauncey said he would stay, because we were going to offer him the same [money] as Detroit. But then Chauncey went to Flip and said, would you play me, and Flip—I'm not saying that Flip said the wrong answer, but he said, "I'm not sure that I think that you're our starting guard."
